Clean Energy

Wind power is the most affordable zero-emission source of electricity. Burning fossil fuels releases huge amounts of carbon dioxide and other pollutants into the atmosphere. This causes climate change, has numerous economic, health, and security implications and will drastically alter the environment.
When wind power is produced, it reduces the amount of fossil fuels needed to meet our demand for electricity. In New England, one megawatt hour of wind power reduces the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by over 1100 pounds. The average household in New England uses 7.5 million watt hours a year, creating over 8300 pounds of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Wind power can help reduce that drastically.
